These pictures of rainbows, fireworks, blurry human faces and the crowd after bombing taken by ordinary people on their phone in the early 2000 are all attempts to grasp fleeting moments. Even though they are hazy, pixelated and nearly unrecognizable(at the bottom of the visual hierarchy.) But for me, they are much more powerful and progressive than those crispy sharp and well-made pictures.
There is this neutral tone in every user’s manuals, they present a beautiful vision to people, a vision of connectivity and community in a seemingly reliable way. By juxtaposing these visions with awkward and silly everyday pictures. I try to explore the conversation between them, the idea of past optimism and how ordinary people deal with the altering political landscape.
